Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Goldeneye opens with a mild acai berry bouquet with a hint of cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and cherry blend with notes of gentle minerality, oak and a hint of black tea. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a quite a while. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with a grilled butterflied lamb or a filet mignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Located in the heart of the Anderson Valley, our Gowan Creek Vineyard features a unique terroir with elements from the valley's warmer regions and its cooler, Northern "deep end." Deep and expressive, this beautifully structured Pinot Noir displays luxurious aromas of brambly blackberry and blueberry pie, along with hints of black licorice, anise and pennyroyal. On the palate, robust, mouthcoating tannins add presence and volume to the dark berry fruit flavors, with lovely underlying acidity drawing the wine to a vibrant finish.
